TERMS YOU NEED TO KNOW
Point-of-sale (POS) intrusions are
attacks that occur on the device
transacting a sale, such as mobile
payment terminals common in
retail and hospitality.
WHY IT MATTERS:
Nearly 30% of all breaches reported in our 2015 DBIR
involved attacks on POS systems by criminals targeting
payment card data or seeking a gateway to personally
identiﬁable information held in other systems.
